Florida Arachnids

Location: Bushnell, Florida

After braving the crowds at Wally World (AKA grocery shopping), I wandered the campground in search of insects or other small creatures to photograph. The colder weather in Texas had sent most of them for cover, so it was with a sense of excitement that I found a couple spiders that are still out enjoying the Florida warmth. As usual, click for a larger image.

  • A Golden-silk Spider (Nephila clavipes):
